| good,old movie
Charming old movie (black & white) set in our colonial war during the winter. A hessian soldier-Franz Lederer (conscripted into the British army goes a.w.o.l.) Meets American girl, romance, candles in the window, bundling board-(an old new england custom to conserve wood) ensue. Saw this 30 years ago on TV haven't seen since. Charlie Ruggles was particularly good. So is Lederer and the female lead.
